Thanksgiving Giveaway (Demo)

Is your church or organization providing food, help, or services to those in need this Thanksgiving?  Please let PGC Blog know so that we can shout it from the mountaintop or at least bull horn it from Central Avenue.  I read a story online about poverty levels being on the increase.  A very sobering and sad poverty statistic from the article: The District of Columbia is number 2 in poverty levels only to California, which tops the list of states.  You can see then Census Bureau report on poverty HERE.  Maryland is one of the 14 states for which the Supplemental Poverty Measure rates were higher than the official poverty rates.   An uptick to all these statistics is that African Americans aka Black people so a decrease in their poverty levels; they fell from 27.8 percent to 25.7 percent based on the revised numbers.

Hey there, I know there are several churches that give away Thanksgiving baskets through a local non-profit. My congregation, University Christian Church, may have a few slots available.
